Sometimes a real hero lets you save yourself . . .
Sayer Cole and Zeb Fuller couldn’t be more different. She’s country club and fine-dining, he’s cell-block and sawdust. Sayer spends her days in litigation while Zeb spends his working with his hands. But none of that has stopped Zeb from wanting the stunning blonde since the moment he laid eyes on her—even if the reserved lawyer seems determinedly oblivious to his interest.
Sayer is certain the rough, hard, hot-as-hell Zeb could never want someone as closed off and restrained as she is, which is a shame because something tells her he might be the guy to finally melt her icy exterior. When he shows up at Sayer’s door needing her professional help, she’s both disappointed and relieved that she won’t get the chance to find out just how good he could be.
But as they team up to right a wrong and save a family, the steam created when fire and ice collide cannot be ignored.
“Crownover weaves a tale that touches every emotion and keeps the pages turning.” —Liliana Hart, New York Times bestselling author
Crownover begins a new series with the same old, same old. Inked-up reformed bad boy? Check. Uptight love interest? Check. Takes place in Denver, Colo.? Check. Steamy sex? Double check. Of course, fans won't mind, because Crownover delivers on promises, even if the same promises have been kept, and kept, and kept over the span of several novels. Yes, characters like Zebulon Fuller and Sayer Cole are predictable, but they're likable. He's an ex-con construction business owner whose tattoos fascinate self-contained lawyer Sayer. She wants to lick them, but resists because, well, it's just not her style. From the moment they meet, Zeb embraces the powerful vibe between them. She feels it too, but rather than succumb, she hires him to renovate her Victorian home. When he needs her lawyering skills, she finally lets down her guard and stuff gets real. Crownover's fans will find this hits all the expected buttons.
